if they have children and go thru a divorce, would the courts even concider him for custody of the children. i would hope not, but crazier things have happen in lamar county courts. really wish someone with a knowlege of family law could anwer this question.

what if he is not only a sex offender but has a criminal history 3 pages long, hasn''t had a real jib in 5 years, is an alcoholic, and is on probation for non payment of child support. i bet u his chances are unlikely.

Well my opinion on this is that they are his kids too. And i'm pretty sure he had somewhat of a criminal background before you met him and had kids together. It takes some time to rack up 3 pages of criminal records. So apparently you knew his background before you hooked up with him. Am I right so far? And clarify a real job for me. I mean if he goes somewhere to work or does odd jobs for money and gets paid even a little bit isn't that a real job? I don't think a court can stop him from having custody of his kids' unless the sexual crime was done to his kids'. But if that's the case, custody wouldn't even be in question anyway. Am I still right?

Sex offender doesn't automatically mean a child molester does it? It could be that a minor female lied about her age to the man. And she could have gotten mad at him and turned him in. So that by law makes him guilty automatically correct? This example has happened many times to good, honest people in the past, present, and future. Now I will agree that he should be held accountable for not trying to find out more information about her. And maybe he did and that's how this happened, who knows. But GET REAL!!! On the subject if you would read a little deeper on my post. I said that unless the sexual crime happened to his own kids by him then he wouldn't have the option of being around his kids. No court is going to let that happen and shouldn't in my opinion. I agree that Lamar County courts are different but none the less I don't feel they would make a decision like that. As far as his "conscience" goes, who can predict or know what any person will do given anything they have or haven't done in their past. People do change and any person could just snap off of good judgement at any time. Kinda like a woman who would drown her own kids because she thought God told her to and then claim insanity. Or trying to blame it on depression and having never had any kind of symptoms in the past. I'm not taking up for the man at all. So please don't take it that way. I'm just trying to offer a different view on the situation given the information we both have. So please, come on and get real as well.....

Well I don't know about that. Sadly though, I do know of a woman who was convicted of aggravated battery against her 6 year old. This kid came to school with severe bruises all over them. Mom did go to jail, but. Not only did they let her out on probation, and not only does she still have full parental rights, but the kid lives with her now. So apparently, you can do some pretty awful stuff in this world & still keep your kids. Personally, the only time I've ever seen anyone have their kids taken away from them is when they willingly give them up.

I completly agree with you grw. And that is very sad indeed for that child. And only time will tell what kind of person that kid will be when he/she grows up. It's sad but true that sometimes the apple doesn't fall far from tree. Also, I know that women are just as guilty of sexual crimes and other related crimes as men are. And to me that is very sad because most women to me are considered to have then mother hen syndrome. And that's where they wont let anything happen to their children. I just hate the fact that most people automatically assume that a man is always guilty no matter what the circumstances are relating these subjects. And rarely ever consider a woman to be guilty of the same. I'm glad you posted this about the woman you know. Because it sheds a different light as well. Good job..

Who Cares: You're an idiot. No pervert who has to get his jollys off with unwilling women deserves to see his own kids, let alone live. Please refrain from joining discussions of this nature if you can't provide any useful, non-sneering comments. I'd bet a dollar in the hole that you're either an offender yourself, or are the parent of an offender. Shut UP!!

Your reading comprehension skills are sorely lacking. It was never said that a "pervert who has to get his jollys off with unwilling women deserves to see his own kids."

Your best bet is to get an attorney and not leave it to the topix legal opinions. Good Luck!

well.... you think you know it all on this, are you one of these sex offenders?? you might be seein as how you know alot about this topic. bottom line is you don't know anything and you might as well have saved embarrassment by not sayin anything. you know the 'ol sayin opinions are like a**holes. re-guardless if the person molested his kids or someone else's he should not have any rights to his kids! if he molested someone else's kids what makes you think he would not to his own? you have no idea do ya? any person found guilty of this crime should have all rights to kids banned for life and be banned from any place where kids may be. and that is any and all courts. NO offender should be allowed around any kids supervised or not. let alone how many sex offenders have myspace or facebook?? alot more than you think. so you say ppl change?? think that gave you up there. and no they don't they relapse. wether they are offenders, meth heads, or crack heads.NO OFFENDER SHOULD BE TRUSTED.

What if an elementary teacher was involved with a convicted sex offender and drug dealer, plus she has children of her own and she is meeting this guy at the school's back parking lot? Should she be allowed to teach your children? Yes, she is fully sware of all the guy's history, yet continues to be involved with him.
